Week ending 7th December 2018:

Firstly, a huge thank you to all who came to help with, or share in, our Slipper making DT project this week.  We know the children enjoyed having some extra hands to help. Three children, from each class, who have been shortlisted following evaluation of their slippers by other classes,  will present their slippers to a panel of 'Dragons' on Monday afternoon.

In Maths next week we will be focusing on drawing and measuring angles.  Key vocabulary includes: angle, degrees, acute, obtuse, reflex, protractor, right angle, straight line, estimate and measure.

In English we will be revisiting Instruction writing starting with a short task to establish how much they remember!  Key vocabulary (some clues here!) : time connectives, imperative verbs, layout, sub-headings, colons and bullet points.

PE with Mr Lett will be on Wednesdays as usual.  Sadly, we have now come to the end of our Royal High School coaching sessions but will be continuing to practise some of the netball skills learned on a Friday afternoon.

Homework this weekend is a choice of maths work related to fractions - please complete either side A or B on the sheet. This needs to be completed by Wednesday 12th December.  The next Spelling test will also be on that Wednesday. In addition, please continue to make the best use of our free trial with Doodle Maths.  Any feedback from parents would be welcome!

Hoping to see you at the Christmas Fair on Sunday - we will be manning some games so please come and join in the festive fun!

The Year 5 Team.
